(WATCH) Ben Shaprio's interview on Real Time with Bill Maher

Rebel Staff

While the majority of the political left is obsessing over trigger warnings and anti-Trump hysteria, Bill Maher stands out as a liberal who respects freedom of speech and isn't interested in silencing opinions he disagrees with.


WATCH the full interview to see why Bill thinks conservatives have more guts than liberals, and how Ben thinks the two sides can engage in civil discourse.

Tony, not so!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

What does groper mean exactly? Give me some context for that, because you have no clue as to what he actually did. As I said, he could have just been flirty and put his arm around her.

Groper sounds like he grabbed her breasts, ass or vagina, which I am certain did not happen in the way that you are trying to make it out to be.

There is no story here YET. The right is desperately trying to make it a story after it was already settled 18 LONG YEARS AGO.

How patient do I have to be? How long do I have to wait for all your predictions to come true.

Be patient Tony.

I’m not calling Trudeau a rapist, he is a groper for the time being. This incident took place 18 years ago, not 20. (for accuracy’s sake, it did happen in 2000)

You prove once again the old saying “if it’s not a Tory, it’s not a story”.

Anyway, I will bid you a good evening. This convo has run it’s time!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

I am not uncomfortable with anything, but you are certainly expecting a lot of things to happen from more accusers for Justin to Obama being arrested.

You do like the conspiracy theories.

Me? I will wait for something to actually happen before I treat Trudeau like Cosby or Weinstein like you are already doing.

She wants nothing to do with it now. He apologized and she moved on 20 years ago. If she wanted to make a fuss, she could have done so during the first election. Don’t let him become PM in the first place.

The only people are acting like it’s not settled is the right wing media. Not the woman herself or her family and friends. This is not a Andrea Constan situation.
commented 2018-07-06 16:12:51 -0400
Who says anything is settled, besides Trudeau?!! Doesn’t he have a policy to administer to himself? Maybe you should go back and listen to Trudeau when it was others in his party coming under the microscope for sexual harassment etc….he clearly laid out the Liberal Party’s policy, now, he doesn’t want anyone to bring it up because his past is catching up with him. Karma has a way of doing that!
Just saying!

Oh, I see, you are uncomfortable with the notion there are others…suit yourself. Taken in by a sophist.
Mr. Groper is receiving international bad press. Do you think he will go into rehab now?
I guess you didn’t see her former boss and co-worker’s statement the other day, I recommend you look it up.

Anyway, the homework Trudeau gave to all of Canada is another example of him distancing himself from his own conduct and shifting the focus from his own accountability to somehow we all have to do better. What a pathetic little man, whose story changes quite a bit.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

First of all, we don’t know what he did that was inappropriate and which he apologized for and is now settled. That could mean anything – from something tame and that he wouldn’t be arrested for to something extreme, so you can in no way claim that Trudeau has some sort of history now of sexual assault and groping.

It is what you hope you will happen and that is completely wrong.

Have you actually considered that he was just flirty and put his arm around her. In your mind, it’s the worst case scenario – Trudeau was a finger blaster.
commented 2018-07-06 15:18:46 -0400
Just like when Trudeau said the budget will balance itself, the investigation will investigate itself!!!

Trudeau doesn’t think there should be an investigation…. apparently as a society we need to reflect on it and all of us are now in an awakening – his word salad is now focusing on anything but himself and his own conduct….pathetic!
commented 2018-07-06 14:33:41 -0400

Justin is two faced. Speaks with forked tongue. Has a different set of rules for himself. He is the definition of a hypocrite. No matter how you slice this, no matter what slap he may or may not receive by his party (not, is more likely), politically he has damaged himself. Its not just this incident, but this one is resonating. Canada is sick of him telling us how we should be and what we should think, especially when he is a creepy groper. Its not going to wash anymore.
commented 2018-07-06 14:33:35 -0400
Rex Murphy: Trudeau’s ‘awakening’ on groping allegations is (ahem) a bit of a reach
What you’re hearing is the vague, anxious music of virtue-signalling hummed by someone in a tight political spot

Isn’t it though!!!
commented 2018-07-06 14:27:15 -0400
Tony, as you are probably aware, people who are eventually confronted for historical sexual assault, groping, sexual harassment etc…do not generally leave one victim in their wake. As you are also aware, others do come forward after initial reporting. It’s not hoping others will come forward, there is a high probability of it.

You sure like to throw the word hate around and attribute it to others, hate is a waste of time. I don’t like Trudeau in the least, he is untrustworthy and unstable. His shell may look put together, but, on the inside he is an absolute mess.

His spin on this is truly a performance of the worst kind. His body language gave him away, he’s a sophist.
commented 2018-07-06 13:50:35 -0400
Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Let’s be honest shall we – you WANT other people to come forward. You hate Trudeau so much, that you irrationally are hope, hope, hoping that more women come out with claims to destroy him as opposed to just wait for 2019 for him to hopefully voted out.

I just don’t understand the notion in your mind that he is already guilty of various inappropriate behavior towards women or sexual assault and those women FOR SURE will coming forward soon.

It’s sad and pathetic quite frankly, but hey…you be you. I will wait for politicians that I don’t like to either be voted out or resign if they have done something illegal politically. I am not going to hope women come out of the woodwork to create a scandal.
commented 2018-07-06 13:36:19 -0400
Kudos to Michelle Rempel for staying with this so the liberals do not shove it under the rug. Its international now, and not going away.

Tammie could be. I certainly do not blame her for not wanting to be a part of the circus. She has done enough publishing the editorial immediately and speaking to her superiors. Justin has done enough by publicly apologising at the time. Its not an anonymous case. Her name is known, but it is being kept out of it, which may have been part of the deal. I cannot blame her.
Now we just need Justin to live by his own rules. Failing that, it will be kept in the press until voting day.
commented 2018-07-06 13:05:36 -0400
I’m thinking she signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement and Trudeau’s trust fund lawyers cut her a cheque.
Others will come forward soon enough.

liza rosie,

See it’s this type of comment from you that shows that you don’t think rationally or reasonably and you completely overreact when it comes to anything – it’s always the worst case scenario and we’re doomed:

“I can’t wait until next October. I hope the country survives that long”.

That is a completely irrational and laugably ridiculous statement, but hey that’s Liza!
commented 2018-07-06 11:38:24 -0400

An anonymous and obviously conservative source sent the article to Kinsella. He didn’t dig up anything, but felt compelled to share it as to not be seen as biased. Then the right wing media pounced on it like starving dogs.
commented 2018-07-06 03:45:12 -0400
Are you telling me Coyne is a conservative? I certainly never got that impression. He is the guy who dug up this article about Justin in the Creston paper. I didn’t know he was gunning for our PM. Maybe he prefers Scheer as well, or is just as sick to death of Justin as the rest of us. Or… maybe he just came across the article and felt it his responsibility to bring it up. Politically motivated? You would have to ask him. I never took him for a conservative, that’s for sure. I’m glad to hear you are voting for Scheer , troll. I can’t wait until next October. I hope the country survives that long.
commented 2018-07-06 01:57:47 -0400
liza rosie,

If Trudeau loses in 2019, it won’t have anything to do with this.

I am fine if he loses. Sheer is liberal lite so it’s still a win/win for me.
commented 2018-07-06 01:54:38 -0400
liza rosie,

Oh that’s right – you have only followed the right wing hyenas who are trying to dig up something that was settled 18 years ago and you are ignoring the woman involved that wants nothing to do with it now.

There is no complainant. She wrote something 2 decades ago. If she came forward now to repeat the accusation then we would have a complainant. There would be someone for an investigator to question about the details of the event or what the possible interpretations are.

No one else has stepped forward to say “me too”. Given that there isn’t a complainant there is nothing that Trudeau needs to respond to. He apologized for inappropriate behavior 18 years ago – which could mean anything and it was settled then.

I suspect if she still had a problem with Trudeau, she would have come forward during the last election. This is politically motivated and nothing more. We both know that.

spin spin spin don’t you ever get dizzy Tony Stark?
commented 2018-07-06 01:19:36 -0400
He’ll never resign, or get hauled off to jail, he has too many ‘helpers’ for that to ever happen. However Canadians probably won’t forget this little incident any time soon and added onto the mountain of other things he does to himself , well lets just say, lets just wait and see what the election results are next fall. It’ll all come out in the wash.
commented 2018-07-06 01:15:26 -0400
How the hell would you know what she thinks? What a presumptuous *rick you are. Justin even said he wouldn’t presume to speak for her, But Tony troll can. yeah okay.
commented 2018-07-06 01:09:26 -0400
liza rosie,

He apologized, she forgave him and moved on with her life and has ZERO problem with him today. Settled. What is so hard to get here?

Do your opinion and agenda supersede what she thinks and her wants, which is for the right wing media to fuck off.,

She is fine with him today, but you want him to be forced to resign and hauled off to jail if possible. How is that logical to you.
commented 2018-07-06 00:54:28 -0400
This thing will play out all on its own. What was settled? She was so upset at the time she wrote an article about how uncomfortable it made her feel, and how unwelcome and inappropriate it was. None of that is even the point, damning as it is. The point is, the ‘man’ does not live by his own rules. He has booted people from his caucus for less. That is what pisses off Canadians, many Canadians. You do know how to read twitter feeds don’t you. Just look at what people are saying.
